Publisher's Summary

My name is Lucian Quinn, and I own one of the most successful software companies in the world. I'm 29, rich, and single. Impressive, right? I'm also a favorite target for every hungry socialite looking to land the uncatchable catch. What these women don't know, though, is that I'm completely screwed up and damaged beyond repair. The only part of me I'll ever willingly give them is the hour it takes to make them scream...several times. Then I saw her....
I'm Lia Adams, and I'm in my last year at St. Claire's University in North Carolina. I grew up with an abusive mother and a twisted stepfather who was much worse. I'll do anything necessary to survive, even work as an escort to help pay for my college expenses. The men I accompany to various events are mostly harmless and just want an attractive woman on their arms for an evening. It has never gone further than that...until him....
Contains mature themes.

Warning cliffhanger

It has a cliffhanger, wouldn't have gotten it if I had known that, or I would have waited on part 2.

I knew I shouldn't have done it but I did.... I listen to this before I had books 2 and 3 safely in my library and arghhh what a huge mistake that was because now I have to wait and wait and beg Audible to get the next instalment in Lucian and Lia's very addictive bitter-sweet love story.

A story that has the rich, bossy and sexy Lucian, who looked like a God, manipulating things and changing his ways for the sweet, intelligent and beautiful Lia a Student/Escort who has captured his attention with her straight talking, sad history, caring personality, independence and she understands him so well. He has secrets, secrets that gives him terrible nightmares and they make the emotional shutters go down and he turns cold when Lia mentions the scar that runs around his neck. There's also a bitchy ex waiting in the wings who's biding her time til she can cause some trouble.

Two people haunted by the past - one is eaten up by regrets and hate and one is willing to move on but the past catches up with them which leaves an OMG jaw dropping cliffhanger. Sydney Landon has brilliant writing skills but it's taken me all day to forgive her for leaving the story right there. I have a love/hate relationship with trilogies because I have to wait so long for the eventual HEA but there's good news and bad news..... thankfully Book 2 has been released already but I have to wait until May/June time for Book 3.

Worth a credit? These two characters sucked me right into their lives, their heartbreaking back stories, the dilemmas that they're each now faced with, their ever building need to be close to each other and their desire for each other. Intense storyline, great characters, great narration, dual POV's, with heartache, humor, slowly unfolding secrets, drug use, deeply hidden secrets, sizzling chemistry, angst and drama, there's lots of Alpha dirty talking and plenty of sex which makes this a must have trilogy and YES, Part 1 was definitely worth the credit.
